Ana Pina was born in 1980, in Porto, Portugal. She graduates in architecture (FAUP, 2004) and works in an office for a few years, until she founds her passion for contemporary jewelry. She develops her personal brand since 2012 and founded Tincal lab in the summer of 2015.
In her work she combines her background in architecture with traditional jewelry techniques and contemporary concepts of design in the creation of jewels with a strong abstract and geometric inspiration, in search of a modern, versatile and feminine style. Unique pieces or limited collections combine elements of a common vocabulary in a game of contrasts and textures, geometric relations and asymmetries, as if they were letters building words inserted in a bigger text.
